Power Quotes From The Show

Strategy About Life

“Your strategy for your respiration comes down to your strategy about life. Are you running around always trying to put the fire out? Or are you somebody who know how to switch off and relax and lets somebody let's say take care of you.”Leland Stillman MD

Fighters + Their Negative Emotions

“One of the reasons why contact and violent sports don't embrace things like EMDR and neurofeedback is that once those guys get their demonsr, rage, and anger under control, and they release some of the negative emotions, they don't do their job of hitting and damaging other people as well.”Leland Stillman MD

The Immune System

“A healthy and well functioning immune system isn't not doing anything. It's just catching the problem early so you don't even notice it. The presence of symptoms is not necessarily a presence of bad microorganism.”Leland Stillman MD
